All but one heads of state in the 14-member strong Sadc region have jetted into the country ahead of their summit in the Capital City, Lilongwe tomorrow.
Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe was a centre of attraction as it turned to be another Heathrow of Malawi with planes touching down and taking off almost every hour bringing in hundreds of delegates to the all important heads of state summit.
Political and social commentators have patted Her Excellency President Joyce Banda for her sound political, economic and social policies which created the enabling environment for the summit to take place.
“There cannot be such a high profile conference in a country where there is no stability, this could not have taken place in the previous DPP regime because of economic problems the country was going through because of bad political and economic governance,” said an analyst from Chancellor College.
Leader of Opposition in parliament John Tembo said in an interview credit should go to President Banda for allowing that the conference takes place in Malawi, saying this is an important meeting of the heads of state.
Both the City Centre and Old Town of the Capital City are the busiest places of the Capital City as preparations for the meeting come to an end ahead of the meeting on Saturday.
Preside Jacob Zuma of the Republic of South is amongst the high profile comers.
